Dec. 15, 2015: A tiny kitten that was found on a conveyor belt and escaped potential death at recycling center in Galt, Calif. The tiny kitten now has a new home after being found at the Northern California recycling center. (KCRA-TV via AP) GALT, Calif. – A worker at a Northern California recycling center saved a tiny kitten from certain death when he spotted the animal heading down a conveyor belt. Tony Miranda tells television station KCRA that he was sorting recyclables Tuesday when he found the pink-nosed, white-pawed cat between the debris and scooped it up. It's not clear how the kitten got in with the trash, but it may have survived a ride in a dump truck before a tractor pushed it onto one of two conveyer belts. A call went out to employees of Cal-Waste Recovery Systems that a baby cat had been discovered at the facility in Galt, a city about 90 miles northeast of San Francisco. Another worker decided to adopt the kitten and named it Murphy.
